Funding earmarked for Wimmera Intermodal Freight Terminal

  • Posted on Wednesday 2nd, August 2017.

Wimmera grain growers are set to benefit from the development of new industrial lots at the Wimmera Intermodal Freight Terminal site in Victoria, following the announcement of $1.25 million in funding from the Andrews Labor Government for Stage One of its construction.

“The Wimmera Intermodal Freight Terminal is located on the national rail freight network and further investment at this precinct will create better connections from paddock to port,” said Minister for Agriculture Jaala Pulford.

Industrial lots with bitumen road access, street lighting and other amenities will be established on the 100-hectare precinct, for agribusinesses and food and fibre processors establishing operations at the precinct.

The Wimmera is one of Victoria’s largest dryland farming regions and the Wimmera Intermodal Freight Terminal is a key export hub for local grain producers.

“By investing in the best infrastructure, we are helping grain growers get more produce from paddock to port more efficiently – that’s good news for growers and Victoria’s booming exports,” Pulford added.

“Supporting Victoria’s agriculture sector by investing in key infrastructure is a priority for the Government.”

The $2.5 million development will be delivered by Horsham Rural City Council, with support from the Labor Government.
